Best Answer

Mother Teresa was known as one of the most patient people in the world. This was because, as a devout Catholic nun who devoted her life to God's Will and His teachings, loving one another regardless of race, religion, sex, occupation and living conditions was a top priority.

Mother Teresa believed that to love people properly, especially those who suffered from the "greatest poverty of all" - the poverty of living unwanted and unloved - one had to be patient to let love blossom properly and fully; not only in the person who was willing to love another but in the person who was loved.

At the beginning of her career, many accused her of lying, saying that she was attempting to convert the Hindu people of the slums into Christianity. Mother Teresa learned that with patience, the truth would be eventually revealed.
